Default Project Reality: BF2 Installation Guide

Project Reality: BF2 Installation Guide

Uninstall all previous versions of PR:BF2 before installing PR!
If you are on older versions of Windows, make sure to install DirectX 9,.NET framework 4.72 and Visual C++! This otherwise makes you unable to load the game.
Disable your Anti-Virus during installation and white-list the PR Installation folder afterwards.
Check this thread for more common Launch issues if you experience any.

Step 1. Download

A) Using the Download Assistant
The fastest and most user-friendly way to download and install PR:BF2 is using the official Download Assistant.
The Download Assistant will download the installer using the Torrent protocol. So make sure this isn't blocked by your ISP.
Simply download the Download Assistant from our PR:BF2 Download Section and follow the instructions in the application.

B) Using the HTTP Download links
To download simply through your browser choose one the ModDB or direct HTTP mirror downloads (everything outside of Torrent and Download Assistant). You only need to use one link. It will download the installer folder as a ZIP. Please use Windows in-build zip tools, 7ZIP or Winrar to extract the installer folder before installing.

C) Using the direct Torrent download
If you downloaded the Torrent, this is NOT the full install. You use the small .torrent file with a BitTorrent client to actually download the full .iso file. We recommend qBittorrent. The Torrent is the recommended download method in order to avoid corrupt downloads. Once the torrent is downloaded through your selected Torrent software, you will be presented with a folder with all the installation files. Move on to step 2 after the application finishes the download.

Step 2. Installation
The Download Assistant will allow you to start the installer once the download is completed. The HTTP (after extraction) and Torrent version of the download comes in the form of a folder with all the installation files. In order to install it, you simply run the installer it contains (setup.exe).

It is strongly recommended that you close all open applications when installing PR:BF2.

After installation is complete, depending on the choices you selected in the installer, you can either launch Project Reality: BF2 from the desktop shortcut or your start menu.

Congratulations, you have now installed Project Reality: BF2 and are ready to play. If you have any confusion over these installation steps, please don't hesitate to post a support thread in our Support Forums.
